First, ask yourself the question ” what is faith?”.
Then ask yourself what you know about religion.
After that, you can learn how to get rid of faith in God, although it will be unnecessary – the answer lies on the surface.
If you still haven't found the answer, here it is:
Getting rid of faith in God is very, very simple, just find a new source of faith, something that will inspire you and accompany you on the future path.
Why do we need a new source of faith, i.e. why believe in general? Because you can't exist without faith, sooner or later something will happen that will make you break down. Do you think it's good to be an atheist? Nothing like that. They are supposedly free, devoid of morals and a sense of self-preservation. All this seems at first glance. The very existence of a person needs faith, in order to continue living and find help.
Better be agnostic.
I think that knowledge in the field of various sciences and the desire to improve morally can help in this matter. As well as fostering a cheerful disposition and sense of humor. A person who loves knowledge, does good through his vocation, and has a positive outlook on the world does not need to believe in the non-existent, because he feels full and strong in order to be happy in the real world and contribute to the happiness of his neighbors.
Excuse me, but what kind of God do you mean?
And why “get rid” of faith?
We have a modern society, and if you do not live in a country with a significant share of religion in politics, you just need to publicly declare that you no longer believe in what a church/mosque/synagogue/other religious structure imposes on us, stop performing the corresponding rites and celebrate significant dates.
If you want to make a conscious decision about changing one religion to another (atheism in our time is also elevated to the rank of religion – the belief that there is no faith or something like that), then I advise you to read something about obvious “inconsistencies” in religious texts and their interpretations. Of course, most of the information about falsifications, incorrect translations, and obvious errors can be found in the Bible, but there is also something to pay attention to in the main books of other religions. Just in one post and don't list it. Conversations with fairly intelligent people who identify themselves as atheists or agnostics can contribute to your awareness. I am sure that from each of them you will hear the story of their path to the realization of the absence of God and some interesting facts related to the” previous ” God of the interlocutor and his teachings. Well, the final chord can be rage, of course. Pray fiercely, observe all the rituals of your religion, and ask your God for the one favor that you miss so much in life. Follow all the canons as long as you have enough patience, and then get angry with God and stop believing in him to spite him))) However, there is a pitfall. To hint at it, I'll tell you a parable:
“There was a very religious man in one village. He observed all the fasts, constantly went to church and prayed, led a righteous life and never asked God for anything. But then an emergency happened: the village of this person was under threat of flooding and the authorities sent buses to evacuate people, but our “hero” told everyone:
– I'm not afraid of the flood. I am a righteous man, God will save me.
The evacuation team tried to persuade the man to go with them for a long time, but he flatly refused, and the buses left without him. After a while, the water began to arrive. First a little, then faster and faster. And now there was so much water that they came to the village in a motor boat, knowing that there was still a man there, and tried to persuade him again:
“Can't you see the water coming in?” Soon everything will flood and you will drown.
“No, my God can't do that to me. I have always been his son, and he will definitely save me
We tried to persuade him as much as we could, but the man didn't go anywhere. He stayed in his house, and only climbed higher and higher, fleeing from the incoming water. When the water drove him to the roof of the house, he sat on a horse and began to pray:
“God, I never asked you for anything. I have always been a righteous man, and I have not broken any of your covenants. Please show these sinners the full power of your grace and don't let me drown.
At that moment a helicopter hovered over the man's head and a lifeguard descended to him on a cable:
“Grab the rope and tie it around you – we'll get you out of here.”
“No, I don't need your help. I am a believer, God will save me.
Rescuers tried to drag the man on board, but he flatly refused and fought them off. As a result, they also flew away. Very soon the man was up to his neck with water, even when he tried to stand on the roof ridge. And then the water swallowed him up completely and he sank like a stone. The man woke up already in “heaven”. And he asked the angel who accompanied him to fulfill his request: to answer the question of why God did not save him. To which the angel replied:
“God sent for you three times to save you, but you refused his messengers.”
The word God people call the Supreme Mind that created our world.
Hence, your question goes like this:
How to get rid of the belief in Intelligent creation of the world?
The world exists, and both believers and atheists accept it.
But, here on understanding the cause of the world, the difference of faith begins.
The believer does not know, but believes in Reason
The atheist also does not know, but believes in the self-creation of the world, i.e. in the miracle of its self-emergence.
Therefore, you must believe in a miracle.
